Originally established in May 2014, URBANwell Magazine has become a creative platform for a diverse group of urban folk. Over 60 local writers have online access to our digital “Writer’s Well” which features articles written by published authors, local business owners, university professors and everyday urban folks with something to say about faith, culture and community.
Our readers are inter-confessional, well-connected and incredibly active community members. Readers often volunteer in community projects sponsored by URBANwell Magazine and it’s affiliate partners. Through the magazine we have grown a volunteer base of 95+. In addition, we currently have a digital fan base of 50K and growing.
Through the generosity of our partners, we provide a creative platform that enables our readers to take a deep dive into:
- Community engagement
- Creativity and innovation

- “I would like to take this opportunity to share with you how much the article you published on our agency meant to us. Between the time the article came out in mid-November and the end of December, we received over $7000 in monetary donations. We also received an abundance of food and supplies for use by our clients. Most importantly our clients were adopted for Christmas by several Christian individuals who not only provided them with gifts, but prayed with them and shared the true meaning of Christmas. Once again, thank you for all you do for our community.”

“In The URBANwell, we are able to reach the community who supports us. We can educate on important issues that affect our families, such as the sexual health of our young people. We can encourage Christians to serve in their own neighborhoods. We can shine a light on the value of every life created in the image of God. We can do all of this in a high-quality, Christ-centered publication tailored to the families of Ellis County. It is a privilege to work together with The URBANwell Team.”
